Sprinkle the tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce over the soup mix and herbs. Place the baking potatoes towards and touching the outside edge of the crock-pot. Place the quartered carrots on top of the roast and in the middle of the potatoes. Spread the onion pieces evenly over the top. Pour the beer evenly over everything.
- Cook on low for 8 to 10 hours or on high for 4 to 6 hours. Serves 6.
- POT ROAST GRAVY: if desired, remove meat and vegetables to a platter; keep warm. Pour meat juices and fat into a large glass measure. Skim off excess fat from pot juices. Measure 1 1/2 cups juices (if necessary, add beef broth to equal 1 1/2 cups). Pour measured juices into a large saucepan. Stir 1/2 cup cold water into 1/4 cup all-purpose flour; stir into pot juices. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat to medium and cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes more. If desired, add several drops Kitchen Bouquet.
